While the HCMA does not subscribe to any one religious belief we recognize that there is a great need for spiritual healing and guidance when faced with a lifelong medical condition. We have asked several members of the HCMA, who happen to be religious leaders in various houses of worship to moderate this portion of the message board to assist you in any way they can.
IMPORTANT NOTICE - This area should not be used to forward the beliefs or practices of any one particular religion and all view points are to be respected.
